Wardrobing in GoT: Such Amazing Details

Recommended Posts

I'm bringing this over from TWoP.  The level of attention to detail in the costuming on this show is just incredible.  Here are just a few examples, but there's so much more to show and tell--including all the armor, weapons, decorative trappings on the horses, etc.  Imgur your favorites and bring the images here for all to scrutinize and enjoy!

An official clip from TimeWarnerCable that showcases Season 4 costuming, interviews with actors as well as deesigner Michele Clapton, lots of intriguing close-ups of details. Only 4 minutes but I wouldn't have minded watching 40. (Including some explanations about Margaery's wedding dress.)

Joff's incredible armor.  I think this was from Battle of the Blackwater.

I definitely admired Ellaria Sand's dress at the wedding. That should be required attire for all women of Westeros. And I'm sure if Margaery sees it, she'll want a similar dress made. It seems to fit her tastes.

For the most part, the costuming on this show is incredible. It all feels completely authentic (except maybe that aforementioned dress) and appropriate to the world they live in. And the care taken to distinguish each culture and region by its styles of clothing is wonderful attention to detail. And I really like the look they've created for the Dornish this season.

But I do wish the Kingsguard wore more white. I find the gold armour to be a little too drab, and to blend too easily into the background. I had such a strong image of those white knights (literally) when reading the books, and they stood out a mile in the Dunk & Egg graphic novels.

^^ Me, too--love 'the Dornish look.'  All sort of sandy colored, but quite exotic and elegant at the same time.  Even their horses get beautiful 'jewelry.'

Gread thread, the costume are amazing. And they vary so well between different regions and different houses. For example Starks, sturdy and serviceable; Lannister, proud and intricate; Greyjoy, bland and covered in salt stains; Dorne, sunny middle-eastern quality; ...

^^ Agree.  Starks, no ornamentation at all.  Versus Lannisters over the top, cramming as much gold and as many lions as are humanly possible all over themselves.  It reminds me of the phrase:  'If you have to keep saying you're the king, you're not a true king.'  Cersei's necklace at the wedding was ridiculous, ugly, I saw it described as 'big gold hubcaps,' Ha!  Compare that to Margaery's delicate, tasteful airiness.  It's telling that during the Margaery-Olenna scene of choosing a wedding necklace, Olenna discards all the huge, bulky ostentatious offerings, saying, 'Are you an ox?'   Nailed it.  The Lannisters are oxen, in that way, chained and harnessed, bound by Tywin's 'You're a Lannister!' directive.  I'm just in awe of the costuming in this show.

I will say the costuming for Sansa at King's Landing always strikes me as wrong.  And, maybe, that's the point.  She is a slim teen-aged girl from the North, yet in King's Landing we constantly see her in huge, thick, I might even say gigantic bulky gowns and capes, her hair in fantastical loops, braids, coils.  Nothing 'natural' about it.  

Hopefully, whatever her next venture is, now that Joff is dead and she's fleeing KL, the amazing GoT costumers will return her look to the naive, teenage girl she actually is.  Can't wait!

Hope others bring more examples here of the awesome costuming of GoT, and the symbolism incorporated into it.  Fascinating stuff.

I read this in a costuming article from one of the previous seasons: Sansa's clothes are intentionally wrong for her - she dressed to match Cersei when the Lannisters had absolute power over her. When Margaery looked like she could be an ally, Sansa's clothes picked up some influences from her. 

Her clothes, basically, are a weathervane indicating Cersei's social/political influence.

And her hair too. When Sansa was friendly with Margaery she had a more casual hairstyle. For her forced marriage to Tyrion and the Lannister triumph of Joffrey's wedding she had the big Cersei hairdo with braids. When she was mourning her family in 4x01, her hair resembled Catelyn's. Now that she's escaped and hopefully has more control over her wardrobe, my guess is that she might have a general style like Catelyn's: simple hairdos with some practical touches, blues/grays but perhaps in darker shades than in Sansa's season 1 Stark-style clothes when she was an innocent child.

As great as the costume porn is, I think I prefer the hairstyles. I've seen stills of the embroidery and costume articles discussing the details etc. but much of that work is so small that it never shows up onscreen. Until I saw a comparison post, I never picked up on the differences in most of Margaery's blue dresses because they were so minor (her astronaut dress in season 2, as ridiculous as it was, at least had a look that didn't get lost on the small screen). The same goes for most of Cersei's red and Sansa's purple dresses; Sansa's Purple Wedding dress didn't stand out as more expensive/elaborate than her usual look, at least Cersei had the big necklace, in both cases it was the hairdos and extra braids that showed the most effort and glamor for the special occasion. And I had no idea the pattern on Dany's season 3 blue dresses was meant to be dragonscales that get bigger because the second dress looked so much like the first, simpler version. So I agree with the opinion that the costumes can sometimes be too detailed for TV and that different cuts and outlines would add more immediately recognizable variety. That's why I really liked Ellaria's wedding dress: the fabric moved so freely, instantly setting her apart from Margaery in her similarly cleavage-baring but tighter dresses, and the chain hairnet stood out.

It's going to be so strange when Arya finally gets to change her outfit.

^^ Agree about the hairstyles and jewelry.  The hairstyles, especially.  Cersei's elaborately coifed and twisted and heaped-up and complicated 'do's' seem as exaggeratedly over-the-top and under stress and strain as she herself is.  On an innocent teen girl like Sansa, they were just grotesque.

Sansa with a braid in 4x05. It reminds me of Catelyn's braid when she threatened Littlefinger with a knife - very nice. It's been such a long time since the show has been to the Vale, I look forward to seeing the style of that setting now that GOT has a bigger budget and more experience with what it wants to do with its costumes.

Is it nuts that every time I see Tywin, my first bothersome reaction is 'Oh, god, that big heavy pin is so poking holes and ruining that beautiful silk jacket?'

A look that says, "Not only am I so rich I can afford a silk jacket, I'm so rich I don't care if I have to buy another if I ruin this one sticking some ugly ass pin into it".

No wonder the Silk King of Qarth told Daenerys to get lost.

Her dress seems to be made of, or at least imply, black feathers.  I wonder, black feathers as in Mockingbird, or black feathers as in Falcon?  Can't say I like that necklace at all, though.  It seems to be just a big black plastic circle, unless I'm missing some symbolism there, which is possible!

Thanks for finding and posting that image. She's stunning.  Black for mourning... and Sansa's rebirth. She's taking on the image of her captor to a degree.

I'd also say that Sansa has been like Odette, the sweet white swan, but now she's working with Littlefinger like Odile the black swan works with the evil sorcerer in Swan Lake. She's not doing it entirely of her own free will though, so the necklace looks like a heavy chain. But at least she gets to make her own dresses again, like at Winterfell.

 

I really hope we get to hear the costume designer's thoughts about this new look.

Maybe it has something to do with being in mourning for aunt Lysa though why wouldn't she do that immediately.

I don't like the black hair though. The red made her stand out.

She's become my favorite character. Those her chemistry with Littlefinger.

When she arrived at the Bloody Gate, Littlefinger insisted that she cover her hair because it stood out.

Lysa's hair was red.

I was thinking at first that Sansa might be trying to look more like a Stark and less like a Tully but it also makes sense that she would try to look more like her black-haired "Uncle" Littlefinger.

The black hair is a disguise. She looks like her uncle Littlefinger now, not like anyone named Tully or even Stark. That necklace does look just like the Moon Door. I am not sure what that's all about, but it is a sort of intimidating look.

 

It looks like now there are two people who know who Alayne really is, besides Baelish and Robin. I wonder where Baelish is going.

Sansa's wedding dress included the little fish pins that Catelyn used to wear and in the previous episode she had her collar-thing, so she's going Northern again. This was the first Northern costume that stood out in quality/expensiveness and looked like it was meant to be the equivalent of the kind of power-dressing Cersei, Margaery and Dany do in their more glamorous environments.

 

Margaery's second wedding dress looked as awesomely campy as the first, it's a shame we saw so little of it.

 

Minus points: the Sand Snakes' Power Rangers look. Myrcella got the sweet, airy ingenue dresses compared to the more form-fitting Ellaria/Snake costumes - I'm not yet sure whether that works or is way too obvious.

Something I hadn't noticed before: apparently Theon wears Robb's Red Wedding costume during Sansa's wedding. That's both practical, since the costume designer doesn't need to make a new outfit for him, and in character in a horrible way, since it implies that Ramsay may have dressed him like that as a cruel joke. And like the backstory they came up with about Dany always wearing her mother's ring, the only thing she and Viserys managed to avoid selling, it's there purely for the actors or as an easter egg for eagle-eyed fans.

As far as Sansa's necklace if it on just right you can see the outline of the letter S ( hidden Stark?) and her" needle" on the end  I wouldn't be surprised if it's poison for a certain bird eh

Titan

.

If you looked at the dress she wore watching LF leave KL it combines Stark and Tully elements.

All of Sansa's clothing has symbolism check out dragonflies, butterflies and moths for symbolism along with, fish, wolves,Ravens,Crows falcons, pears, pomegranates, the color black; all these things have symbolism for Sansa's character either in show or in the books.

The new outfits (courtesy of the new costume designer) this season are whack. Discuss.

...Seriously, though, what was up with Gilly's dress in 6x06? It looked some sort of generic Simplicity "medieval lady" Hallowe'en costume pattern. Other offenders: Missandei's palazzo pants, Grey Worm's studded tunic (as if Grey Worm would go in for fancy ornamentation on his clothing), etc. 

I will say that Michele Clapton had issues as well: Catelyn's WTF stiff neck collars, Dany's version of Qarth power dressing (nice shoulderpads), the outfits of the masters (uninspired and kind of weird-looking), etc. Cersei's wardrobe in my opinion was hit and miss until Season 3, when Cersei started wearing those amazeballs off the shoulder red gowns. Sansa has worn a succession of ugly gowns in muddy, ugly colours. Her simple, woolen light grey dress with the rose details from Season 1 (and one episode in Season 2) was much prettier and more flattering. I liked her wedding gown, but it was also spectacularly hideous in its way, as opposed to the delicately beautiful dress she was described to be wearing in the book. Granted, one could think of character reasons for the ugliness--Sansa is trying to disappear in her clothes and avoid drawing attention to herself--and for the muddy colours--light blue and baby pink, the colours of her dresses in Seasons 1 and 2, weren't appropriate for someone losing her innocence and maturing, etc. etc.--but great fashion it was not. Her dark blue velvet dress in Season 6 looks like a step in the right direction.

One thing that Michele Clapton did do well was giving all the different characters a "uniform" of sorts. They would have different costumes but with the same look or silhouette and colour palette. With a big cast, it helped the audience identify people and sort them into groups more easily. In fact, if you're not paying attention, you might mistake one costume for another, when really it's a succession of costumes with very similar silhouettes and colours. (Margaery's dresses in Season 3 were a good example.) The new costume designer has continued this with Missandei and Tyrion, who've worn a number of costumes that are pretty much interchangeable.

The problem with all the exquisite, tiny embroidery is that it just shows up as coloured blobs on screen (even in HD). Ditto for the "scale" embroidery in Dany's clothes. Up close,it looks very cool. On the show, it just looks like an unusual fabric ribbing or blobs. I feel that if you're going to have embroidery with important symbols, make it really fucking obvious, like Sansa's front and centre wolf embroidery in Season 6, or don't bother.

The dresses did have a generic Ren Faire quality about them that the show has mostly done a good job of staying away from.  So in addition to being bored through much of their scenes I was distracted thinking about how both they and Margarey are from the Reach but you wouldn't know it from looking at them at all.

It was nearly as distracting as all the complicated knots tied to metal rings the wise masters seem to favor for whatever reason.

Was it in the episode thread that I saw someone post that the old costume designer is coming back in season 7? Is that a rumor?

I'm looking forward to getting a better look at the direwolf dress Sansa created with what were called her Project Runway winner skills, as well as Margaery's pious fashion statements (hopefully she'll get more than one new dress). Even though Sansa's sewing hasn't really gotten a lot of attention before this, compared to cooler stuff like swordfighting, I would love to possess her talent in the real world.

I was so glad to see Gilly in something different that I didn't mind the Ren Faireness. On her the costume looked out of place like she just wasn't familiar with how to wear finery and make it look good, which was appropriate.

Dany has had some nice looks, but the rest of Essos hasn't been as good as the Westerosi regions. Poor Arya with the Braavosi hairstyle.

I liked the Braavos hairstyle. It was something different, at least.

Going back to Michele Clapton, the more I think about it, the more the clothes have been a mixed bag. When she was good, she is very, very good, and when she was bad, etc. My highly subjective favourite and least favourite outfits by character for the Michele Clapton years:

Dany Favourite: White silk dress in 3x08 with the pseudo-slave metal collar, Dany's white dress from 5x09.

Dany Least Favourite: Tacky lavender prom-type wedding dress from 1x01, belly-baring Meereen white dress (doesn't seem like something Dany would wear). 

Sansa Favourite: Light grey wool rose dress from Season 1. I also got a laugh out of her travel outfit matched to Littlefinger's in Season 5. The Tyrion wedding dress would be up there if it weren't for the collar/sash thing that was supposed to showcase all the embroidery (that couldn't be seen anyway); the shape was quite nice underneath all the crap, and the stiff gold fabric and silhouette worked. (Sansa having a huge dress that was difficult to maneuver highlighted how trapped the character was.)

Sansa Least Favourite: Dark grey coat dress from Season 3 (bad colour, ugly, unflattering). Her self-sewn dress in 1x01 was amusingly hideous (guess she's leveled up since then!).

Cersei Favourite: Off the shoulder red gowns from Season 3, especially the one she wore when asking LF to dig up dirt. Gorgeous.

Cersei Least Favourite: Gown from the joust in Season 1 (although granted her hair did her no favours in that scene, either).

Margaery Favourite: Tommen wedding dress, blue dress worn at Sansa's wedding in 3x08.

Margaery Least Favourite: Joffrey wedding dress (fabric looked cheap on film, thorn details didn't work).

Catelyn Favourite: Uh...

Catelyn Least Favourite: Those stupid neck collars! She was even wearing one at the Red Wedding!

Overall, I think, Cersei and Dany have done pretty well clothes-wise, while Catelyn and Sansa haven't made out so well. I hope they keep Sansa in vivid blues, though, because it's a beautiful colour on Sophie Turner.

But we aren't suppose to think of MC, we are to think about Sansa doing what she was taught about her culture (drab and austere), same for Cat, she came from a southern house and now the clothing reflects it.

And the Lannisters and Tyrells, over the top, I'm rich!!

The hairdo's are another matter LOL the horizontal braiding on Cersei looked heavy and unattractive .

I like Sansa's Direwolf; but I would have liked it more if it was Grey over White instead of bejeweled. Though it could be said that she learned that you can have color in your fashion from being south it just comes off as loud; which may be what the designers want us to see.

Rundown of Clapton's major looks for the ladies:

Daenerys

Best:  the white dress from 3x08, the dress with cutouts from 4x07 (fine for the "just had sex again!" context)

Worst:  I agree, the 1x01 wedding dress isn't that great.  I'm not fond of the Dothraki-inspired thing she wears to meet the Spice King either.

Cersei

Best:  2x01 small council dress, 3x08 wedding dress

Worst:  1x09 Ned's execution dress (granted, some of my dislike may be more properly about the hairstyle)

Catelyn

Catelyn's wardrobe all blended together for me.

Sansa

Best:  Blackwater dress (the best of her various KL looks), 5x06 wedding dress (the first Northern fashion that looks like it could compete with the best of the south; are we meant to think Sansa made that too?)

Worst:  1x01 banquet dress, the one from 3x10 (which I believe she wears a few other times)

Margaery

Best:  3x08 dress from Sansa's wedding, 4x04 mourning dress.

Worst:  2x03 tourney dress, 2x10 dress (I'll spare the ice cream cone dress from this list, for its sheer weirdness)

I wish the men's fashion on this show was a bit more distinct.  Robb, for instance, never really looked any different from any of the other Northerners in his scenes; everybody swaddled in big fur cloaks and leather jerkins.  The armies could really stand to have a bit more colour (I was rewatching the 1971 Macbeth film the other day and that made very vivid use of colour in a "realistic" medieval setting).  Since Sansa is apparently in charge of Team Stark's tailoring, hopefully when Bran gets back she'll sew him something nice and distinctive.

Oh, and that leather jacket Jaime got in Season 4 always looks way too modern to me.

The idea of Sansa having made the dress she got raped in is depressing, but it seems likely now that I think about it. It's not like there were a bunch of wedding dresses just lying around.

Margaery wore some ugly stuff in Season 2 that I'd forgotten about. The tourney dress was pretty bad.

I wish the men's fashion on this show was a bit more distinct.

Agreed, although there were some inspired decisions: dressing Tyrion in clothing echoing Tywin's, for starters.

Is this the appropriate thread to bitch about the hairstyles? Because I have a lot of opinions in that area.

Cersei looks about as impressed with her hairstyle as I was. I was so distracted by how comically lopsided Cersei's hairstyle was that I missed that Sansa's hairstyle was also lopsided. That whole hairstyle looked ridiculous as well. I remember the hairstylist for the show describing it as their "crown," like "We gave her a literal crown." They phased that style out in later seasons--Cersei actually had some pretty great hairstyles later on--but oh man, they made us suffer.

I guess that's my cue to pick favourite and least favourite hairstyles:

Dany Favourite: Funeral pyre braids in 1x10

Dany Least Favourite: Dunno. Frizzy Qarth hair, maybe?

Cersei Favourite: Cersei looked pretty boss in 3x08 with the braided bun and twin rope braids.

Cersei Least Favourite: 1x09 hair, as shown by SeanC's picture. Never forget, indeed. The "crown" hairstyle was pretty terrible, though.

Margaery Favourite: The 3x08 wedding hairstyle was really good. Margaery looked great at that wedding.

Margaery Least Favourite: That Joffrey wedding hair in 4x02. The first time I saw it I howled.

Sansa Favourite: Eyrie snow castle scene hairstyle.

Sansa Least Favourite: Tossup between that awful "crown" hairstyle and the yanked-back twin braid look that she seems to be sporting in Season 6 (and that she wore in Season 1). I get that that hairstyle is a northern thing in the show (Lyanna had a similar hairstyle in flashback), but ugh, I'm not a fan.

Catelyn Favourite: The part up/part down style (which she wore at the Red Wedding among other places) was very pretty and soft.

Catelyn Least Favourite: Braids were not a good look for her.

It's possible for characters to wear clothing that's simple and stark (sorry) without being ugly, though. Sansa just wore this succession of ugly, muddy colours that would do no one any favours and certainly not someone with red hair: puce, grey, puce-grey, olive accents, etc. The prints were ugly, too, to my eye.

In general, season 3 was my favorite for eye candy.

Catelyn

Best: Saying goodbye to Ned in 1x03. Worst: 3x07, the plainest version of her simple dresses and questionable collars/necklines. Catelyn never really got a costume that stood out.

Cersei

Best: Sansa's wedding in 3x08, my favorite example of the style Cersei developed after Margaery's arrival. Worst: Jaime's return in 3x10: I know she's in her own room, but that's something she'd never wear in public and it doesn't look quite right for her casual, private wear either.

Daenerys

Best: 4x06, a nice combination of her regular blue and white colors that's a little more regal than usual. Worst: 2x01, an ugly mix of the Dothraki elements.

Margaery

Best: Sansa's wedding, the look that says KL Margaery to me. Worst: prison gown. Margaery has my favorite style, even when she's in that gloriously weird cone dress or going over the top for her weddings, so I can't say I dislike anything she's worn of her own free will.

Sansa

Best: Tourney dress in 1x04, simple yet with beautiful details that stand out and Sophie doesn't end up being overwhelmed by a ton of fabric that does her no favors, as often happens. My other favorite is the Ramsay wedding dress; it's sad that we got out first look at genuinely rich, beautiful Northern clothing that can equal the power-dressing of Southern ladies in such a context. Worst: 5x10 escape, a mix of her bad KL looks and that strange Northern neckline.

The dress itself is middling, but I will say, that blue cloak she's been wearing since her escape from KL is a very nice wardrobe accessory.  Good thing she decided to wear something appropriate for winter conditions to Joffrey's wedding.
